Swim Lane Flowchart Symbols

Swim lanes are visual elements (parallel lines) which divide the diagram into the lanes for visually distribution the processes, sub-processes of a business process, decisions at these lanes and widely used at Flowcharts, Flow Diagrams and Maps, Process Flow Diagrams and Process Models, Cross-Functional Flowcharts, BPMN and UML diagrams.

Swim Lane Diagrams are one of the most popular way of description complex processes with multiple participants and an essential part of flowcharting. Swim lanes can be arranged horizontally or vertically, depending on the type of Process Flow Diagram, requirements, convenience or personal taste. The lanes are marked with names, each lane is allocated for one person, actor, group, or department and contains the steps performed by it, tasks and sub-processes. The arrows between the lanes represent transmission of information or materials between the subprocesses. So, the Swim Lane Flowchart depicts in details the whole process, the roles, responsibilities and dependencies of each person or group.

The ability to quick and simply create professional-looking Swim Lane Flowcharts and Swim Lane Process Maps is made possible owing the powerful Business Process Diagram and Business Process Mapping solutions from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Pay please your attention for the Swimlanes and Swimlanes BPMN 1.2 libraries from the Business Process Diagram solution and for the Swim Lanes library from the Business Process Mapping solution. These libraries contain the set of special professionally developed swim lane flowchart symbols - single, multiple, vertical and horizontal lanes which are the perfect basis for your Swim Lane Flowcharts of processes, algorithms and procedures.

Take the benefit from the ConceptDraw's RapidDraw and Action features that allow to concentrate your attention on the diagram content, not on the drawing process. Use the Rapid Draw button on the Shape toolbar to activate the RapidDraw mode and then add each next object using the RapidDraw arrows and choosing new object from the pop-up menu when you bring the mouse cursor over already created object.

The object's Action menu at the object's right top corner offers the set of commands which allow easy modify this object.

Electrical Symbols — Composite Assemblies →

Electronic components have two or more electrical terminals (or leads) aside from antennas which may only have one terminal. These leads connect to create an electronic circuit with a particular function (for example an amplifier, radio receiver, or oscillator). Basic electronic components may be packaged discretely, as arrays or networks of like components, or integrated inside of packages such as semiconductor integrated circuits, hybrid integrated circuits, or thick film devices. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — Composite Assemblies *

Data Flow Diagram Model →

Developing a software project supposes architecture first. To make it proper, you can use data flow diagram model in your current project. The data flow diagram represents the Model of small traditional production enterprise that is made using Yourdon and Coad notation. It shows how the data is transfered through a process. According to the notation of Yourdon and Coad a process is represented by circles and data stores are drawn using parallel lines. This DFD was created using the ConceptDraw Data Flow Diagrams solution. Using this solution one can visualize data flow accordingly to the rules of two basic notations used for data flow modeling.Data Flow Diagram Model *
